Derelict Cinemas and Theatres by Adam Slater

Since 2008, Adam Slater has been on a quest to photograph Britain’s abandoned and derelict cinemas and theatres before they are gone for good. Below are some examples from his astonishing set of beautiful yet grotesque ruins, which you can see in full on his flickr page. His blog, Reality Trip, features more fantastic photographs of old power stations, quarries and more. Be sure to check it out.

    Absolutely amazing and also very sad. I would recommend looking at more of Adam’s photos over on Flickr – there’s some really interesting stuff!

    these old cinemas look amazing, even in their current condition you can imagine how wonderful they were and how amazing they could still be if they were restored. I love old cinemas but have only been to a few as there are so few left. very sad.

  3. As a projectionist at Chapter Arts centre, I was involved in stripping the seats from the Capitol in Cardiff – a glorious cinema theatre where I had seen Carrie on 1st release, Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel and Oscar Peterson,

    We used the seats to refurb our then very cheap Number one cinema and I kept a wonderful celluloid deco stalls down-lighter lampshade (still have it) without feeling guilty as it was about to be demolished.
    Apparently the two Bechstein concert grand pianos were sold to a wide boy by the caretaker before we arrived – for £50 the pair…
